Sponsor Leadership Academy of Madison County
Be a part of something great
We believe that in every individual there is the heart of a leader. Each year a select group of individuals participate in a life-changing leadership journey. Through the Leadership Academy of Madison County and the Youth Leadership Academy, participants develop their personal missions and build individual leadership skills. They come to understand themselves, team dynamics, and community issues more fully. But more than this, they learn to how to collaborate ... to come together and discover shared gifts and talents. And they graduate with the knowledge and passion to build consensus and to work toward solving the problems of our communities.
Out of a group of individuals grows a driving force for change ... an energized, grassroots network of servant leaders who will continue to work together build a strong, vibrant future for Madison County.
“We have made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when we plant shade trees under which we know full well we will never sit.” -D. Elton Trueblood
